Banana Blueberry Waffles

I thought that I found my favorite waffle recipe in my Oatmeal Waffles, but that was before I made these Banana Blueberry Waffles! I had extra ripe bananas on hand, and decided to make this recipe. I used Rachel Mansfeld’s Paleo Blueberry Banana Bread muffins recipe and made them into waffle form, and they were incredible!…

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a whole long list of recipes I’ve wanted to try with ripe mashed bananas, and this Banana Chocolate Chip cookie recipe from delish was one of them! This recipe also is made with peanut butter (my favorite), so I knew it would taste good! Plus it is gluten-free for all those avoiding gluten,…

Oatmeal Waffles

Based on ErinLivesWhole recipe for Oatmeal Blender Pancakes, thank you for the inspiration Erin! I started out making pancakes but it started getting a little messy (I’m not good with figuring out the ideal time to flip pancakes, so I used my Dash Mini Waffle Maker Machine instead). I got this machine on a deal for…

Homemade Nut Butter

If these had a label, I’d write, “WARNING: ADDICTIVE!” on them. I made three different variations of nut butters this past month for the first time, and wanted to share my advice for doing so, as well as the recipes I used. When making nut butters at home, it is important to have a strong…

Peanut Butter Tempeh

A combination of two of my favorite foods, peanut butter and tempeh. I snagged a few bites of the tempeh with the peanut sauce before I baked it, and I knew I would love the final product because it was delicious even before putting it into the oven. This recipe is very easy to make,…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love peanut butter and chocolate, as shown through my various dessert combos containing these two ingredients: Healthy Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Bars, Peanut Butter Banana Cups, Chocolate Chip Banana Bread and Chocolate Dipped Frozen Banana Bites. This is my first cookie recipe to include both of these beloved ingredients! I found this cookie recipe off of…

Peanut Butter Banana Cups

Ever have sweet tooth cravings and end up eating through everything in sight trying to satisfy it? I made these peanut butter banana cups so that I will have something healthy to satisfy my sweet cravings on hand that is both healthy and filling. This recipe uses clean, un-processed ingredients, and keeps you full with…

PB and J Oats

It’s peanut butter jelly time! Especially with today being National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. I love my morning oatmeal, especially warmed up with fruits. I normally like adding tahini, like in my Berry Tahini Oatmeal, to make the oatmeal more filling (I have very little self-control when peanut butter is in the house). However, I…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This recipe from Rachel Mansfield contains my favorite combination of ingredients: bananas, chocolate and nut butter. If you are allergic to nuts, you can use a nut-free butter to substitute for nut butter. Even though this recipe can be paleo-friendly, nothing about the taste of this recipe screams healthy dessert! In fact, this is definitely…

Chocolate Dipped Frozen Banana Bites

The perfect snack and/or dessert to have in your freezer when you are craving something sweet! I’m not normally a huge fan of healthy substitutes for desserts, especially when it comes to ice cream. Frozen bananas are the exception though! I actually like banana nice cream better than banana flavored ice cream! Plus, this dessert…
